He ended his sabbatical after 40 days, announcing that he would return for the 2022 season.
The team’s fans are ecstatic upon learning that the seven-time Super Bowl winner will retake control of their offense.
For a while, they dealt with uncertainty at quarterback, which prompted some starters to contemplate about playing elsewhere.
But as everyone celebrated his return, the person who bought the ball from his “last” touchdown pass had a dilemma.
There’s no way he won’t throw a touchdown again after having 43 of those last season.
Luckily, there has been a settlement with the transaction, as sports business reporter Darren Rovell shared.
JUST IN: A settlement has been reached on the Tom Brady “last touchdown” ball that was bought from Lelands for $518,000 last month.
Brady unretired less than 24 hours after the auction concluded.
Attorney Jeffrey Lichtman, who represented the buyer, said the sale was voided.

Brady threw the ball in question to Mike Evans when they tied the game at 27-all during their Divisional Weekend encounter with the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.
It looked like the 44-year-old quarterback was on the verge of another miraculous comeback which he has done countless times throughout his career.
However, Matt Gay denied them victory when he converted a field goal as time ran out.
Buccaneers Have A Chance To Bounce Back
There’s no denying that falling against the Rams was a disappointing finish because they had the momentum.
However, they have an opportunity to have another run and for Brady to throw more touchdowns.
The Buccaneers’ offense remains solid and scary, with Evans still on board.
But Brady always has a solution up his sleeve.
